8.1. COVID-19 and Virtual teaching

Due to the ongoing challenges in healthcare as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, primary care teaching will be delivered virtually by GP tutors in Term 1 (Sep-Dec 2021).  In January 2022, if is feasible, small groups of students can visit the practice each week while their peers join remotely. 

There is detailed guidance to support the delivery of virtual learning experiences on the CBME virtual teaching website. This website contains information and resources to support the setup and delivery of teaching using group video calls through Microsoft Teams. There is also information about the consent process for virtual teaching involving patients.
